NDIS Workforce

As part of the committee’s role to inquire into the implementation, performance and governance of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the committee will inquire and report on the workforce providing NDIS services (the NDIS workforce), with particular reference to: 

  1. the current size and composition of the NDIS workforce and projections at full scheme;
  2. challenges in attracting and retaining the  NDIS workforce, particularly in regional and remote communities;
  3. the role of Commonwealth Government policy in influencing the remuneration, conditions, working environment (including Workplace Health and Safety), career mobility and training needs of the NDIS workforce;
  4. the role of State, Territory, Commonwealth Governments in providing and implementing a coordinated strategic workforce development plan for the NDIS workforce;
  5. the interaction of NDIS workforce needs with employment in adjacent sectors including health and aged care;
  6. the opportunities available to, and challenges experienced by, people with disability currently employed, or wanting to be employed, within the NDIS workforce; and
  7. any other matters

The committee invited supplementary submissions on the NDIS National Workforce Plan, released on 10 June 2021. The submission closing date was set for 10 August 2021 and a number of extensions were granted. Supplementary submissions can be viewed on the submissions page.
